[NEWBIE][HELP][LONG- Maybe] Attacker hps = Attacker Hps + Damage done to victim.

Ok, from the subject line you could sort've guess what I want to do...
I'd like a spell that flags a player AFF_VAMP_TOUCH, and while the spell is
active causes him to suck the damage he does to his victim.
I've posted about this before, and although I received a response it wasn't
exactly what I asked for, and being a newbie to Circle I'm not sure how to
implement this spell.

The spell does the following:
When casted he utters some magic words, and everyone in the room sees '$n's
hands grow as red as BLOOD!'
He of course gets the message: 'Your hands grow as red as BLOOD!'
This spell gives him AFF_VAMP_TOUCH, and lasts for 24 MUD hours.
The effect of the spell, is: the number of hitpoints of damage he does to a
player/mob is added to his own hitpoints, even after he's reached his
maxhits. (I think I'll limit this to like 30% of his maxhits, so someone
can't go running around with 2000/600 hp).

The part I need help with, is the actual spell effect, I'm not sure what
I'd use to calculate how many hitpoints to add to him/her.
I'd just like to know what functions to use to get this:
 if(affected by vamp touch)
Attacker hps = Attacker hps + Damage done to victim.

Thanks for any help.
